Nope, haven't experienced any double-taps or typos that are kb-related so far. Mind you the kb is only a few weeks old so time will tell.

I found that with this keyboard the lighting is not nearly bright enough for gaming.

I took my G510 back. I didn't think the keys were bright enough either. Nor did I like the general layout of the board. Back to my tried and true Saitek Eclipse 2. Keys are nice and bright,and everything else about it is nice nice also. For the price,the Saitek is very hard to beat.

I'd stay away from that K90. Got one for Christmas and the 1 key was broke. I've had nothing but bad luck from Corsair.

Using a CM Storm Trigger now works pretty good
Excellent lighting
no bios/cmos entrance though without 2nd "old style"keyboard... how silly


Can`t beat the `ole Saitek II Eclipse though ..........3 colors cheap and USB that y can get into bios/cmos on any mb I have used unlike some of the mechanical keyboards today.

i despise saitek. :P anyway after using this deck for the better part of two days i will not be going back to any dome keyboard ever.

night and day.

the lighting to me is just a gimmick perk for aesthetics but blue is perfect because it matches my razer mouse. the osmium also has usb 3.0 right at your finger tips and bios is accessible, no worries there.

cant say enough about this thing. its the bees kness, cats ass... ok i said enough. lol
ps i think its on sale right now for $109, check the latest sale on ncix.
